Grow this hardy, fast growing tree almost anywhere! Kratom seeds are extremely difficult to come by because the tiny pods explode, and the sliver-size seeds disperse into the air. Kratom seeds will germinate in almost any cool to hot environment.
Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a beautiful, hardy, and extremely tall tree, sometimes reaching heights of 30 meters! The seeds produced by these trees couldn’t be more delicate; they grow in pod heads, that contain about 50 seed pods per head. Because the seeds are so delicate and so many, they also have a low germination rate as well. Kratom seeds will sprout surprisingly easy, though. Since you can expect a viability rate of about 10-20%, you can plant between 5-10 seeds per pot. Planting is simple; you can simply drop them onto the top of the soil, and then sprinkle a very thin layer of soil on top, just enough to cover the seeds. In nature, the seeds are so light an so many, that they spread far and wide in the air, and only delicately land, like feathers, on the forest floor. Open the seed pod and get the small seeds in side. Prepare for the standard potting soil and drop the small seeds between 5-10 seeds per pot on to the top of the soil. Sprinkle a very thin layer of soil on top, just thought to cover the seeds. Don’t let the soil dry out, but don’t soak it either. Spray with water every day morning and evening and keep under the shady place until the seed become sprout (it will take approximately a week) after then move the live Kratom plant sprout into the sunlight. The temperature about 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit.
